please, i beg you, STOP.

I KNOW this is going to be a polaring blog post. I've been thinking about it for some time and just can't NOT post it.
Ladies, we need to chat.
Why, oh WHY, are you making the dreaded 'duck face' in your photos?!?!
WHY?
You're too pretty to making that scrunched up face in photos.
Do you really want to look like these ladies? Or that 'Situation' wannabe?
via google
Or how about these cuties?
{more unnecessary use of the duckface}
{also via google images}
I beg of you.... either explain why or please stop.
Unless you are the original duckface...

{Full House anyone?}
....or the best duckface...


it ain't working.
K? Glad we're in agreement.
Oh, we're not in agreement.... okay... we can agree to disagree... I still love you.
xoxo

I tend to stick my tongue out... or wink. I'm pretty sure it's not a conscious choice... because I actually am drunk in the pics. But I don't make those faces for fun ;)

I have been sooo busy with work, I haven't been able to pop around to check out blogs, so I am FINALLY seeing your fabulous new header, with your new blog name. I LOVE IT!

I dont have the perfect pouty lips... so thats exactly what i look like when i try .... a duck. =)

Nicole said...

Oh, I'm cracking up right now. There are very few people that can pull off the pouty/kissy face well. I love that you call it "duck face" because that's really what it looks like.

Haha i see you found thee duck face collage i made. Ever since dave told me about the site, i have tried to tame myself on making that hideous face. The occassional pout is fine...but EVERY PICTURE?! Totally unnecessary.

Kelly said...

Bahahahaha, those are some HORRIBLE duck faces, hahah!! I tend to stick to the "I'm really drunk so I'm going to stick my tongue all the way out" look ;-)

I could not agree more! This totally gets on my nerves!

SG to SP said...

I hate when people do that, it looks ridiculous. Couldn't agree more. I tried it myself once just to see what I looked like and immediately deleted the picture and wanted to punch myself in the face.

These are all pretty horrible but I occassionally make a version of this face. I definitely don't look as moronic as those people above though I guarantee it! Long before "the duck face" was such a "thing" I was making this face but we called it the Platypus Face becuase it was my platypus impression.

Thank you, Morgan. My facebook newsfeed is full of party ducks. And I'm glad to know this drives someone else insane. Why?! It's NOT attractive! Gah! Nice find on the Full House pic- that one took me back!

Kerr said...

haha! those faces are hilarious. how embarassing!

Hilary Lane said...

Hahaha. Love it. I think we're all guilty at some point, but most of us have the sense to look at the picture of ourselves doing it & click "delete"!

KLaw said...

bwah ah ha ha ha ha ha ha!!

lindsey said...

I have this one friend who thinks its hot or something to make that face. It kills me!!

littledaisymay said...

Marian said...

Can we still be friends even if I'm guilty of pulling a "duckface" every now and then:)

mommara said...

Bwhahaha I may have just pee'd my pants a little. So funny and so true.

Rasha said...

I do it in some pictures, out of habit but these are pretty funny.

Allyson and Dave said...

You just gave me random Full House flashbacks!!! I have not heard anyone mention duckface in years.
